Okay. Did some investigating. The problem is that xbmc for windows is compiled using the copy of ffmpeg which is embedded in the xbmc git repository. This version is old (https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master...rmat/wtv.c
), and exhibts the problems I mentioned earlier. The latest WTV demuxer looks like this. http://git.videolan.org/?p=ffmpeg.git;a=...25;hb=HEAD
Notice the dates.
Put simply, the version of ffmpeg bundled with xbmc needs to be updated. You might be able to achieve the same thing by downloading the 'shared' version of win32 ffmpeg binaries (http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/
), and cpying them over the existing avformat, avcodec, avutils, avblah dlls found in the xbmc folder.

I have tried playing back lots of .wtv files and seeking works for smallish files but the duration is never correct. The only file I can correctly play is the sample .wtv that ships with media center but it is only 10 seconds long!
